Mountain Sculpting

An amazing set of photographs documenting the construction of the >>Crazy Horse Memorial<< – apparently the world’s largest sculpture – located in the Black Hills of South Dakota. They capture the explosions used to sculpt the mountain into giant human form. Sometimes, the rock seems to turn to clouds of smoke or puffs of fire – animating the mountain with anthropomorphic human expression. Demolition is always underrated as a creative act.
